I live with a purpose day by day

And strive to do things my own way

Things don’t always go as planned

But I still have ideals so grand

I wrap all my hopes up in strengthening myself

I don’t want to end up stuck on a shelf

I surround myself with people I love

In my heart you’re one of the above

We still have miles to go

I am not afraid to admit so

But when you’re weary from it all,

I’ll be your secret oasis, don’t you dare fall

Please believe that everything will be

Only more beautiful than we imagined it to be

Not as silly and fleeting as what we’ve read and seen

But deep and enduring like how we’ve always been


Bar None

I took a chance 

and you replied 


I flipped, 

a switch turned on 


I’m a light

and everything’s clear 

I’m a radio 

and our song is playing 

“How sweet it is to be loved by you” 


Oh hello 

Where have you been all along? 


I’ve tapped a well of hidden desires 

and words are gushing forth 

I will go where the flow takes me 


Trust in the Universe again 

Worth the wait for you and me 


Because our love makes me want to 

reach for the stars

I Am Sure

If I meet you someday, I would know that it’s you.

My skin would hum and murmur and sing so sweetly,

I’d have no need for warning bells to tell me–I’ve landed a prize.

Trust would come intuitively; blooming naturally

Our eyes speaking for everything words could never convey.

I’d recognize the butterfly in you, and the caterpillar from whence you came

I’d only be proud of the courage it took for you to break through your shell.

And I am sure

The moment you tell me that, I’m not cliche perfect

But you don’t mind because everything about me you find beautiful

Down to the itty bitty capricious details–

That you love the girl and woman and goddess in me.

Honey, you’re familiar

They call me tomato

as I feel the flush blooming


Curse this onion skin



A cup of warm Spanish chocolate

thick on the tongue,

velvet smoothing down.

Double entendres

Laughing at my open innocence

Daylight imaginings.


Red as a tomato

Crimson as a rose

Can’t help it

I wear my feelings out on skin.

Dream a little dream of me

I believe that our desires speak clearly to us in our dreams. It does not matter whether we are asleep or awake, whether we are fully aware of it or not.

The message will come. Maybe in cryptic fragments, maybe in a series like a comic strip or fantasy saga, or maybe it will appear whole, which can be inspiring and intimidating at the same time. But the point is, that our desires become manifest in dreams. And it is up to us whether to leave it as nothing more than a dream and get on with our lives as usual, or something that can take root in reality and create a life of its own–with our help of course.

I dreamt of you more than once already and every time, you always felt like home. I dreamed you into being and you were there when I least expected it. And though I have built a cozy home for myself, softened some edges with time, thought I couldn’t possibly have room for anyone else, you came. You are my moment that felt like Fate.

I know now that I want to keep on building with you if you share the same dreams too. Let’s take this waltz and not look back.

Stellar Dreams

There is a secret drawer that rattles, restless and fitful

If I open it just a crack, dreams within might simply vanish into thin air.

I can see everything with the inward eye–

how you held me with a longing and gentleness

no one else has done before or since

Warm and steady as I’ll always remember it.

The violent shakings are a nuisance

But that moment is still as vivid and dear to me.

Would that everything fall into place and we are free–

to roam every chamber, every nook and cranny of our dreams.

Where kisses turn into bliss

and whispers weave poetry

We feed on them and have our fill

All the eventide until the sun peaks

And even then I’ll be your Star, your ethereal light

The constant in your chaotic life.

The Star

I am a brilliant Star

Who watches you from afar.

My light will be your guide,

Your hope in darkest nights

Your glimpse of the eternal

And cause for continued fight.

My light is my caress

That soothes your fears away

Every last one of them,

Until only we remain.

Such a love like this is blessed,

Such a love like this is envied;

Tossed about by the Fates,

And put to the test by Forces

Even by ourselves;

We hold on–

You to my light and I

To your words

And we,


To be blessed


With love and life


While living my days

A constant celestial being

I remain–

Ever pure and brilliant

Until the Time comes

When you pluck me from the Heavens

And we,

Love as equals.
